Trend Alert: Gaucho Pants

Trend Alert: Gaucho Pants

It is Trend Alert time! I know it has been a long time coming. I have been really inspired the past few days because of New York Fashion Week. One day, I'll be able to go (a true goal of mines), but for now I am happy to look at the shows and street style fashion behind my computer screen. This new trend alert has been on the rise for the past few months. At first I wasn't digging the trend at all but after seeing a few street fashion and street style photographs I became intrigued and interested by it. I decided to do 2 looks with the gaucho pants. I feel that this trend can only be worn in 2 distinct ways. Of course you can accessorize and change it up a bit but the basics still remain, in my opinion. 

Look 1:  This look is absolutely for the flirty girl. These high to mid rise gaucho pants are the statement piece in this look. They are bold (in color and style) which is perfect for a date night or event around town. I decided to go with a long sleeve cropped sweater because it is a great transition piece into spring. The hat is a great accessory for this look because it is bold and definitely a statement piece. Thus allowing the cropped sweater to be a little less dull and boring. The shoes are absolutely perfect. I know it is still cold outside but I am already dreaming of spring. These high wedges will add more height to the look as the gaucho pants tend to cut off the legs. 

Look 2: If you are more chic and trendy, this look is for you. I for one am dying to wear this look myself. I adore the colors and I believe that styling neutrals together is always a plus. These gaucho pants are a little more subtle than in the first look. With that being said, we add a little more flare with the burgundy fringe cape. Side note- the cape has been another great trend this fall/winter that I love! The sleeveless sweater brings a more sophisticated vibe to the outfit which compliments the subtle pants. The shoes are bold in this look so they are definitely the statement piece. The colors of the shoes compliments the sweater and tones of the cape thus bringing the entire outfit together. 

So encase you missed it, the two basic things to know when styling the gaucho pant is to keep it either subtle with jazzy accessories or bold with clean and flirty pieces. Easy right? Own the look with your choice of accessories and you are good to go! Try out this new Trend Alert with me and be sure to tag #brokecitygrl

Love ya!
